Part of the difference to me is that after the coma it seemed, for a while, that he actually started to give a shit about his appearance. His stage presence was a little bit livelier, and his playing was steadily improving. He was up and down on weight a lot, but did seem pretty engaged there for a few years before things started to fall off.

Jerry, Jerry, Jerry...didn't you know it's not appropriate to approach sea turtles in their natural environs? Oh well--I can understand the "pull", and suppose given the benefits he rec'd, a few lapses in the domain of sea turtle regulations can be overlooked.

Great shot, BTW.

The great State of Hawaii hires these turtles to entertain the touristas.

Looks like a Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas)

They are predominantly herbivores, but do also eat some invertebrates such as jellyfish. Green Turtles are an endangered species.

Actually rtws beat me to it. Great shot. I don't know the whole story, but I gather that he was turned onto scuba diving during one of his quests for health. He was mad for it. Had a home on Kauai and everything. I think he described diving as the closest thing to acid that he ever experienced. Plus he was bouyant. Not a minor thing you know. BTW - the last time I saw him was in 1990 in the Waikiki Shell. One of the best places ever. And he wore a black Aloha shirt and looked totally cool.
